1–2 December 2010 National GreenBuilding Conference: Conference for Energy Efficient and Sustainable Design, Construction and Management of All Types of Buildings

Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto, Canada

Approximately, 50% of green house gas emissions come from buildings and associated activities in Canada. The increasing pressures to reduce green house gas emissions, rising energy costs, and a growing global interest and demand for efficient, responsible growth and development are fuelling the trend towards green building and design and have reinforced the need for a stronger focus on sustainability.

The National GreenBuilding Conference will focus on all aspects of green design, construction, retrofit, and maintenance leading to high performance buildings, and will examine best practices and project delivery models that result in more efficient methods of designing sustainability into any project.

26–28 October 2011 CIB - W078 W102

Sophia Antipolis, France

Convergence, interoperability and integration of ICT are key today to face the increasing complexity of components and systems sustaining the future products and services that will be deployed in the built environment, in a knowledge-based. Increasing regulations, consideration for a sustainable development where buildings have to play a key role in satisfying societal expectations, the need to improve the competitiveness of the Building industry to drive and stimulate product, service and process innovation and deployment: all those growing priorities are to generate an impact never achieved so far in the Built environment and the Construction processes, while at the same time, will lead in a near future to unprecedented research and business opportunities for innovative companies to deliver ICT-based solutions for future so-called “smart buildings and cities”, for the benefits of citizens, industry and governments.

This is why the joint organization of CIB W078 and CIB W102 conferences in Sophia Antipolis, France, on the 26-28 October 2011 is to be a unique and exciting event, introducing to the broad achievements in research, development, standardisation and industrial implementation of advanced Computing, Information and Communication Technology and Knowledge Management in the Building sector, and providing an ideal forum for future collaborative innovation and creativity.

21–23 May 2012 Construction Research Conference 2012

West Lafayette, IN, USA

The theme of this conference is "Construction Challenges in a Flat World". Construction projects are very complex undertakings that are impacted by global economic, political, and environmental challenge. Globalization, climate change, international economic crises and civil unrest, have impacted construction in many direct and indirect ways. The sensitivity that the construction industry has demonstrated towards changes in the global economic, political, and environmental conditions makes management of construction projects an even more challenging process. There are many interactions between stakeholders that are very complex, interrelated, and truly global in nature. The management of these undertakings needs to be done with the view that the world is truly flat. This view of construction management necessitates the creation of transformative tools and methods to address the challenges created by the global nature of today's construction industry and to adapt to the rapidly evolving global and local conditions.

30 June–3 July 2012 Creative Construction Conference 2012

Budapest, Hungary

Meeting the demands of the world requires increasingly great knowledge, and more and more branches of science and engineering enter the service of building. The Creative Construction Conference invites those researchers who have realized the significance of the above points and accept that building materials, construction technology, and management, are going to change exponentially in the future and would like to contribute to this process with their own findings, and to join our collective brainstorming.

12–15 September 2012 Ibausil: International Conference on Building Materials

Weimar, Germany

By establishing the International Conference on Building Materials "ibausil" in 1964 an international forum for the exchange of scientific views was created. One aim of the conference has always been to bring researchers from universities and industrial enterprises, from the east and the west, together in the geographical centre of Europe.

As in the past, the main emphasis is put on problems of the development and application of building materials. An accompanying exhibition of products and procedures will also take place. In addition, the organizers intend to offer special excursions on the last day of the conference.

The variety of sights in and around Weimar and the impressive cultural heritage and contemporary works of art will make your stay in the "European city of culture 1999" pleasant and worthwhile.

7–9 September 2015 The 5th World Sustainability Forum

Centre for Teaching and Research of the University Hospital of Basel

2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.

The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.
